LANSING, MI. (WLNS) – By Thursday morning we’ll have a better idea of how many people are living on the streets in Lansing.
Volunteers and law enforcement will join the Greater Lansing Homeless Resolution Network for the annual census.
Teams will meet at the Volunteers of America building on Larch Street at 10 p.m. on Wednesday for orientation.
The census begins at 11:00 p.m. and usually takes until 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning.
Volunteers will count how many people are staying in shelters and try to give shelter or assistance to those without a home.
The census is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and congress will use those numbers to determine funding levels for the city.
